      It is Spring and I am loving the change in the weather. It motivates
      me to sit in front of my computer and crank out the webpages. HA! I
      also get outside for some much needed digging in the dirt.

      ~~~~~~~~~~ Great Idea!
      This month is "Use what you have" Month
      A challenge for crafters - take a month with no new supply purchases.
      You know we all do it, buy supplies with no particular project in
      mind. Collect and hoard paper and pens and fabric OH MY! Well my
      hoard is way too big, so my goal for this month is to USE a bunch of
      this stuff and make some art!

      Join us at flickr to post your "Use what you have" Artwork.

        I currently teach in a K-6 school and have 30 min. a week with each class.
        This had been a challenge with regards to completing clay projects. I have
        done beads with 1st, pinch pot mugs with 2nd and drape mold bowls with
        third. My sixth graders have seen this and are now begging to do clay. I'm
        having trouble thinking of something sophisticated (and we all know how
        finicky sixth graders can be) enough for sixth graders that can be complete
        in 30min. Any ideas? It would be much appreciated.

          Hi Allison and all,

          Kris Fontes ceramic looms for weaving can be made in one short class
          period:
          http://www.krisfontes.com/ceramic_looms.htm
          You will need plenty of texture panels.
          Kris did these with 7th grade. I have seen it done with 5th - so 6th
          should be able to handle it. The following week, they give the frame a
          watercolor stain - then acrylic gloss finish. They select their warp
          colors and weft colors. The next week, they do the weaving (and can
          finish at home if you don't get done weaving. Adding some ribbon will
          take up more space and require lesson yarn.

          Most of the lesson ideas I have take more than one periods. Leaf
          impression bowls can be done in one period - tie in science too.

              Hi,
              I like the frames. What size approximately? Also I was counting the holes for the yarn or string, any hints there?
               There appear to be 4 pairs of two, but a few loan holes, at one of the sides?
              Thanks Susan

                In regards to quick and sophisticated...thumb masks! Start with a ball
                of clay smaller than a ping pong ball. Add a depression with your thumb
                (hence, the name). Pinch a nose or beak shape. Depress eyes and mouth
                with fingernail or small sticks (gold tees work as a nice two ended
                tool). Add designs, if desired ( history of masks good...African,
                Native American, etc.). Add a small hole to the top so that it can be
                used as a pendant on a heavy cord. After bisque firing, we spray
                painted them black, gold, or silver and then rubbed with a contrasting
                color into the depressions.
                Hope this helps.
